Twitter censors radio host Andrew Wilkow for tweet about Trans Day of Vengeance: Popular conservative radio host Andrew Wilkow noted on Twitter that his account was censored for a tweet about the Trans Day of Vengeance. While a screenshot of his censorship notice was not available, there was a missing tweet in his feed from March 27 that noted that "This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules." At the time, Wilkow was tweeting extensively about the Nashville shooting and the Trans Day of Vengeance. It appears Twitter censored every post about the Trans Day of Vengeance, even if the post criticized the event. Twitter VP of Trust and Safety Ella Irwin tweeted that the platform "had to automatically sweep our platform and remove >5000 tweets /retweets of this poster. We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. "Vengeance" does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok."
